1950s Silk Wedding Dress

Vintage inspired tea-length 1950s silk wedding dress. Made from silk duchess satin with a broach embellishment to add detail and vintage elegance.

The pure, simple beauty of this dress glowed with the quality of the silk duchess satin. The cut of the dress with the pleats and drapes flaunted the beauty of the fabric at its best.

As with all tea length gowns, the length is crucial to the individual. It is very important that the proportions of the dress are accurate and perfectly coutured for the height and body size of the particular bride. It must also finish at the most flattering part of the brides legs to compliment their unique figure. This may be at the ankles, calves or just below the knees. With Elizabeth’s expert guidance the bride is advised on the perfect length for her own body.

This bride in particular wanted to ensure she had plenty of movement so that she could dance the jive during the wedding reception, which meant finding a length that was both flattering and allowed enough movement and freedom for her to dance the night away!

The bodice has draped pleats wrapped over the bust into a wide pleated belt area, which is trimmed with a beaded broach drawing the eye and creating a flattering focal point on this 1950s silk wedding dress.

The skirt has plenty of fullness, with pleats falling from the waist enhanced with nets underneath creating the required silhouette. Down the back, the dress is fastened and trimmed with covered buttons to match the dress and Swarovski Crystal buttons evenly interspersed. The fitted sleeve has turned-back cuffs with Swarovski crystal buttons.

A beautiful 1950s silk wedding dress that filled the brief of the bride and ensured the quality of the silk duchess satin was shining through all day long.
